Heart attacks are unfortunately common enough for something like a Phillips Wearable Biosensor to make sense. So much sense, in fact, that it's surprising it took this long for something like it to enter the market. The Phillips Wearable Biosensor is a non-intrusive gadget that "monitors key vital signs and streams them wirelessly to a cloud-based service called IntelliVue Guardian that looks for early indications of trouble and sends alerts to doctors via their smartphones or tablets," reports Fast Company.
Light and portable, the Phillips Wearable Biosensor can be tracked by the wearer's general practitioner, especially if that doctor feels like he (or she) is at high risk of a cardiac problem. This product is in line with the idea that patients are consumers and can benefit from such inventions to save their lives.
